Faith has been a word that I have heard my entire life. I am sure if you are reading this that the same is true for you. It has not been until my older years in the Lord that I have grown to learn the real reasons why faith is so important. Perhaps even more important is to understand when we are not “in” faith. Being “in” faith is something, Hebrews 11:6 teaches us, that truly pleases our Heavenly Father.
Sometimes the enemy of God is not evil; it is something far less opposing on the outside and therefore makes itself out to be something that one can novelly pursue, with the full intent on even pleasing God, yet missing out on God entirely. Yes, you may have guessed it. Often, the enemy of God is not evil. It is the extra “o” to God - “Good.”
Psalms 23 is a weapon in the arsenal of a prayer warrior. Its poetic passion teaches us how to pray to God. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says for us to "pray without ceasing." Luke 18 teaches us to be persistent in our prayers. Every day, prayer is our position of power to triumph over the powers of darkness and to release the Kingdom of Heaven into the earth.
